Juice Yo’ Fro πŸ™‹πŸ½

 We all know that consuming raw vegetables and certain fruit in juice form is the best way to ensure our bodies are healthy, but did you know that fruits & veggies can make your hair glossy and healthy, experts say?

Garlic, onion, spinach, coriander and aloe vera contain nutrients that help growth, protect follicles, and fight  hair loss.

Shortly after my mother passed some years ago, the stress and sadness of her illness & ultimately her going on to Sweet Jesus, caused my hair to fall out. I mean in chunks!  I immediately stopped relaxing it, but still continued to experience hair loss!  It was then, that a friend suggested this juice tonic recipe & challenged me to try it!  Honestly, I hate veggie juice but her confidence and knowledge prompted my attention!  In short, I tried it! It worked!  My hair grew, longer & stronger almost immediately!  I no longer juice as often, but when I do, this is my choice of “Drank!”

Hair Growth Tonic

1 CUCUMBER
1 CUP OF ALFALFA SPROUTS

1 CUP OF SPINACH

1 LEMON

1 LARGE CARROT OR TWO MEDIUM CARROTS

2 APPLES

2 STALKS OF CELERY

1 INCH PIECE OF GINGER

This juice is serves as an energizing drink in the morning and has so much good stuff for your hair in it that it’s ridiculous! 

Some of my family who are coffee drinkers, have said that  over time they can replace their coffee for green juice as their morning pick-up. Research provided me are as follows: This juice contains cucumber which is great for hair growth because of its high silicon and sulfur content. Sulfur an essential mineral building block of the human body. It is often referred to as the β€œbeauty mineral” because it necessary for healthy skin, hair, and nails. It also includes alfalfa sprouts. Alfalfa is a legume rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, folic acid, zinc, silicon, vitamins A, B complex, C, E and K and other nutrients that are important for your hair. The spinach is a vital vegetable in this recipe because it is rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C, which the body uses to produce oils in the scalp.

If these vitamin levels are up, hair is sure to grow quickly. Celery is a hair growth stimulator. It thickens the mane and can reduce hair loss. Carrots are a great source of vitamin A, which aids general scalp health and will help thicken up your mane. This veggie is also high in beta-carotene. Your body transforms beta-carotene into vitamin A. This process not only helps keeps the hair you already have healthy but promotes hair growth. Carrots are a great source of vitamin A, which aids general scalp health and will help thicken up your mane. This veggie is also high in beta-carotene.

I HATE juicing but will try anything for my hair!  Quite honestly, I find the taste to be yucky, but I’m telling you it’s worth it and works! 

It’s a win win, as the side effects alone  (weight loss, increased energy, and glowing skin) are enough to send you running to the market! Try it now! Thank me later! 

Happy Healthy Growing Fros Queens! πŸ‘‘
